Cool gauges questions

okay im sure there is another thread all about this that i couldn't find. i am wanting to buy me a set of gauges and i have the money but i am not sure on a couple things. I'm looking for a set of gauges (i really like autometer) that match my stock gauges (face color and light color) i have looked at autometer gauges and I've found a couple good deals on some but i wanna make sure they match. and where do i find the paint to paint the pillar? i have a 2000 7.3 with tan interior. i'm looking for a transmission temp, pyrometer, and boost. if anybody could help that would be awesome!

I have the AutoMeter Z series. I really like the match to OEM style. I used the green LED for lighting and they look great.

Check out VDO gauges. I got mine from summit and I think they match the stock gauges well. Plus I like their quality and affordability.
